pest control

1 Reply

Spring is here and I am getting tenants contacting me about bugs in and OUT of their homes.  Currently I do not have anything in my lease about pest control.  Any suggestions on going forward with my leases.  I do have a bed bug form but nothing regarding pest control.

I am ok with my multi units but my single family units and spiders, etc... seems ridiculous - just curious about wording what people have in their lease?

Since pest control depends on cleanliness...and since sensitivities to pesticides can be a big liability issue, we say "the property is provided pest free and we will re-treat for any issues in the first 30 days. Any additional or periodic pest control is the responsibility of the tenant, with the exception of wood destroying insects".
